Boys Meet Dambuster War Hero's Sister
Our boys get to meet the sister of one of the pilots from the Dambuster raid, who was an old Lanesborough boy.
On June 10th, the Prep day started with Assembly that was led by Betty and Jenny Elmes. Betty is the younger sister of John Hopgood, an old Lanesborough boy, who was one of the pilots in the Dambuster raid. Jenny, John's niece, has recently written a book about her uncle and shared with us stories of his bravery and perseverance. His actions on the night allowed two of his crew the chance to bail out and survive before his plane crashed after completing the bombing run. It was a privilege to hear Jenny and Betty talk.
